Love for the Little Peanut

These LOVELY ladies, my good friends Lizzie, Jani, and Annie, are too good to me! They threw me the most adorable shower for the "little peanut"..and I cannot say Thank You enough to them!! I felt so loved and am so grateful!

My good friend Karen, love you and thanks for coming pretty lady!                                                                                              Jani, me, and Jessica..some of the sweetest girls alive!!!!!

Me and Jess!! The best big sister ever, thanks for taking all these pics and always being there for me..baby girl has the best aunts on the planet.....

Haha! This was too good to pass up, Annie is just a little ways behind me, having a girl too...I can't wait for all the fun with these girls..................... 

These were the precious little favors, a cupcake ( deliciously homemade by Jani) inside these little boxes.That is also what the invitation looked like, with the little elephant, TOO CUTE I can't even stand it....can you?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!!!!!!!!

They also had the cutest idea of everyone choosing 2 letters of the alphabet and having a piece of cardstock to draw and decorate, corresponding with the letter. She is sending ones to my mom and Esther. Then the book will be put together and baby girl has her personalized alphabet book..It was fun to see everyones creativity:)

They had delicious food and made brazilian lemonade to put in the cute milk bottles.. 

More of the girls, Gess, Alicia, Chelsey, Marcy, and Karen.

A few of my loves, Gelana, Paige, and Gess..

More of the lovely ladies, Jani, Marcy, Chelsey, Alicia (and her precious boy Josh Jr.)

Thank you so much for all your love and support, me and baby girl are very lucky!!

Head Down whoop whoop!

I don't have any pics to go with this post, Tyler has the only camera we have (his Iphone) with him on work. BUT I am just posting to report that I had my 30 week appointment today and baby is officially head down..I am so excited!! I really should get a hobby, or read a book, or 5 to help me with the time and anxious energy. But as babycenter.com tells me, I should relish in these last weeks of life before life is not about Tyler and I anymore..thank you for that babycenter...I shall try ha.It doesn't help that Tyler will only be here for 3 of the remaining 10 weeks, so I guess I'm on my own as far as the "relishing" goes.

A little excitement, YAY!

Tyler has been home for a few weeks now which has been wonderful, and we are trying to take advantage of some time before he's out for work once again. This first picture makes me laugh..It was Mardi Gras day, and I was commenting to Tyler how weird it is to think of all the festivities and Mardi Grasing going on back home, and that a lot of other places (especially Utah) have no idea what day it is..I was proved wrong. Tyler goes into work, (where they pride themselves in their better-than-average cafeteria food), and he sends me this picture..Lo and Behold, a SHRIMP POBOY and FRIED OKRA. I'll be honest, I was shocked, and happy. Tyler said the poboy was gross (I coulda guessed that one..I mean look at those shrimp?!) but the okra was good..Anyway, I just enjoyed that story.

We've got the chair in place and bought the little side table and lamp for babes room, it's coming together!! Tyler and Lola just relaxin' and practicing..lookin' like a natural!

Also got this little beauty, it will be the changing table, and is it just me or do these little drawer organizers make everybody squeal?! Now as my mom says, time to fill em up!

This is weeks 28 and into 29..and yes I realize that if I saw this woman at the gym I would be thinking she should turn her crazy lookin' self around and head on home and take a seat. My gym clothes aren't fitting too well anymore, but hey, at least I'm going..so those people giving me looks can just hush.

Tyler turned the big 3-0 on March 4th, so last Saturday I had a little partay for him..I'm not too good at parties and whatnot, but I figured this was a big one, so go big or go home right? I got him his favorite pizza in the area (the Buffalo Chicken from SLAB in Provo), and had a bunch of his good friends over..Thanks to my sis Jess for her help, Jani for her cookies, and everyone that came to love and support my hubby..it was a success and Tyler loved it...good thing he got some extra attention cause real soon he will get much, much less...Unfortunately these are the only pics I took.

And this is another picture that makes me laugh, and I know it's not just me, but it's just such a typical "pregnant lady" photo. We were out getting some furniture ideas at Crate and Barrel (drool) and every chance I got I was plopping down takin' a breather..and in this one I also needed a little almond joy pick-me-up. Tyler was just supposed to get a picture of the chair. RUDE. Well we are almost down the 10 week mark and we absolutely can't believe it. I know this time will fly and I am counting down the days till Momma Missy gets in town (May 15th)..and then Esther, and Jess will already be here, so the party will then officially begin...Bring it on baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
